Portland Press Herald review by Edgar Allen Beem:

“Shetterly chooses his subjects in terms of how the truths they tell speak to the values underlying American society, values we rarely live up to. His portraits feature civil rights leaders, peace activists, feminists, environmentalists, Native Americans, and whistleblowers. …The portraits are profiles in courage that celebrate the power of the individual in service of the common good. Truth Tellers like “Americans Who Tell the Truth,” is positive, upbeat, optimistic, and idealistic … both artist Shetterly and filmmaker Kane are hopeful that problems facing America and the world can be solved by speaking truth to power in a dialogue inspired by images.”
